The new series on energy system integration for data centers

Panel: Is the data center a benefit or burden to the power grid?

With the data center growing in societal importance and functioning as the invisible infrastructure which kept the ‘lights on’ during the pandemic, the way in which said infrastructure is powered and its role in the global energy transition is currently undergoing increased scrutiny. Is the multi-MW campus a friend or foe to the already strained grid? What role can demand response play in reversing distributive congestion?

We ask our panel what role the modern data center will play in shaping the grid of the future.


Roundtable: How important will demand response become to the grid of the future?
